What is this all about?
Neotrope, a highly respected PR, brand identity and marketing firm, established January 1983, is celebrating its 29th anniversary this year. To help struggling and worthy charitable organizations we are donating $25,000+ in "PR Grants" to 10 selected small non-profit organizations who may be suffering this year due to the ongoing economic down-turn.
How to Submit 2012 Non-Profit PR Grants Application Form
Specifically, worthy organizations who are selected by our staff to receive a grant will be provided with services that may include consulting, public relations assistance, newswire services (press release dissemination to media) to promote organization activities to media folk, and Internet marketing. Amount of each grant will vary, but up to ten non-profits will receive a grant. Again, this will not be a cash grant, but combined services to be provided which have a dollar value of at least $25,000 (please read the press releases from the links, below). Services will be provided for 12 months from start of program (through March, 2013).
All qualified 501(c)3 non-profit organization applicants, whether given grants or not, are also immediately eligible for 15% off all Send2Press® Newswire services (discount code for non-profits provided upon receipt of your valid grant application form).
IMPORTANT: your organization must be a qualified U.S.-based non-profit, with IRS provided EIN. A "'not-for-profit" organization which is not recognized by the IRS, will not qualify. Your org must have a physical business address other than P.O. box, and a U.S./English website. You must be an authorized representative (board member, secretary, or similar) of the non-profit to submit an application, or the org's authorized ad/PR agency of record.

This diversity has given us unique insight into the mindset of new business start-ups, entrepreneuers and visionaries seeking to grow awareness about their company, brands, and expertise.
The company was originally known as "Mindset" in the 1980s and mid 1990s (no relationship to any other company past or present with the word "Mindset" in their name), but later became Neotrope, which essentially translates as: neo as in "new" and tropia as in "hyperbole" or, new hyperbole.
Neotrope is a member of GS1 US (formerly Uniform Code Council), and can generate barcodes; is listed with the RIAA to generate ISRC codes for music identification; is listed with Bowker's and has its own ISBNs for book publishing; is listed with D&B/Dun & Bradstreet; and is a member in good standing of the Better Business Bureau (BBB), with an A+ rating for almost 15 years.

Send2Press® was established in 1997 as a "spin off" of the company's "Mindset Media" public relations and news dissemination services, first offered in 1983. The venture, now called Send2Press, was originally known as "Mindset Netwire" (then MindsetNetwire.com and PRnetwire.com) and was initially only offered to our Web design/hosting, e-commerce, and corporate PR clients (on ga-ga.com and MindsetCommunications.com). In 1999, the venture was opened up to the public as the online audience began to grow, and formally became known as "Send2Press." As of 2009, Send2Press Newswire (Send2Press.com) is celebrating its 10th anniversary as a dedicated publicly offered service. Experienced Web surfers can check the "Wayback Machine" (archive.org) to view some of our historical pages, as further verification of our history.
Send2Press is the natural evolution of our traditional public relations and news dissemination business and the migration of the PR business to the Internet. Send2Press is a U.S. registered trademark and service mark of Neotrope.
